    R18 TFT Grievances & Support Group Thread.... aka did the TFT annoy you today?

    BMW's TFT Software updates are a bit complicated. What I've heard is BMW Dealers can't just update you, it has to go through the warranty. Like it's 4 hours or so on a lift to do the update. Once it took me 8 hours to update so that's lot of time of a bike just sitting there so I guess you could...

    Cost of first service

    I agree but 1.75 hours at $125 an hour is already $212 USD. Add $15 for 'shop supplies' and then add in $75-$100 in BMW parts and you're at $325. It adds up very fast. Sierra BMW is charging $82 for their oil change kit - https://www.shopbmwmotorcycle.com/products/bmw-r18-series-oil-change-kit...

    Possible R18 purchase today...now be honest in your thoughts

    The price is what pulled me in to make a deal. I'd say lower expectations on the base model. What you're getting with the pure is a fantastic and wonderful retro riding experience with no frills and extra cruft. You're not getting a GS or RT. The base for $11K is a great deal and you'll get...

    What are you plugging into the Powerlets?

    Thanks for the photo and I TOTALLY forgot I had a Powerlet on the top box. Question is, does mine work since my Top box isn’t OEM but a retrofit. I have a USB DIN adapter on my GS so I’ll throw it on and test it. I’ve looked at all kind of options tonight I think I’m better off keeping my...

    What are you plugging into the Powerlets?

    For the Powerlet on the Fairing, I’d love something flush but that probably doesn’t exist…just not enough space so I’m thinking of this one Cliff Top 4.6 Amp DIN Hella Powerlet Plug to Dual USB Charger Adapter, Compatible with BMW, Ducati, Triumph Motorcycle, iPhone, and GPS SatNav (Short...

    What are you plugging into the Powerlets?

    Here’s an example - Powerlet (PAC-072-06) Powerlet Straight Plug to SAE 6" Battery Charging Cable https://a.co/d/ihThlzh I could run that on the left side leg Powerlet into the saddlebag if I get one that’s like 2 feet long then I have an SAE to Dual USB plug already I could use. That might be...

    What are you plugging into the Powerlets?

    On the Bagger / TC, there’s a powerlet under my left leg and another on the fairing on the left side near the handlebars. I was thinking of running a USB cable from the left powerlet and something thin enough to sneak into my left saddlebag and then charge my USB PowerBank during the day on the...

    Small r18 bagger rider

    Just for everyone in the side-lines, I've never owned a cruiser or glowing or driven a Harley so I just thought this was normal to full dresser bikes with full fork-mounted fairings. Not a complaint but coming from a GS, I've had to adjust but it's not a problem now that I'm used to it.

I sent a note to BMW Motorrad customer service and received this...

    R18 TFT Grievances & Support Group Thread.... aka did the TFT annoy you today?

    I wonder if 'background allow' is what's breaking my map view? I'll do a full reset again and re-pair it all from scratch and see if that works.

    I took delivery of a July 2021 Built R18 Bagger on June. I didn't know that there were software features I was missing like the split screen where you can see music + NAV on the same screen. Issues with audio playback (wouldn't automatically go to next song and would require I open my phone...

    Grip Puppies

    They're universal aren't they? I'd recommend some patience on any bike. Set them out in the sun for a bit, spray down your grips and inside the puppies with windex or soapy water, remove the bar-ends if you have any (it's permanently LocTite on there so be patient) then slide them on takes about...
